Practice Areas

Gregor has a strong disputes and transactional practice in art and cultural heritage law. He acts for a wide range of private clients, private and institutional art collectors, art dealers, commercial art galleries, fine art agents, funding organisations and various private and public institutions. Gregor advises on the contractual aspects of commissioning, buying or selling art, whether through commissioning agreements with artists, agency or gallery agreements, private treaty sales or consignment by auction, including advice on pre-acquisition due diligence and the application of artists' resale right. In relation to the ownership and management of art collections, he has consulted on matters such as the loan of artworks for exhibition, the use of artworks as collateral for financial transactions, and the restoration and insurance of artworks. When disputes arise, Gregor represents clients in relation to contract and title disputes, historical restitution claims, on questions of misattribution or authenticity of artworks and illegally excavated and/or exported artefacts.
